Vertical Horizon's live album Live Stages was released by indie label Rhythmic Records in 1997 and then again by RCA in 1999. It contains five songs from the group's first two indie albums: four from Running on Ice and one from There and Back Again. The rest are unique to this album and include "The Ride," "The Unchosen One," "Great Divide," "It's Only Me," and "Falling Down." For many fans, this live album completed the band's transition from an acoustic group to the alternative rock outfit that broke into the mainstream in 2000. Popular for energetic live shows, Vertical Horizon performs many old fan favorites in the band's newer, amped-up style on Live Stages. This is a good addition for the fan who already likes the band, but Everything You Want is probably the best overall introduction to Vertical Horizon. Live Stages is a good beginning to the search for the group's earlier albums.

This is currently my favorite CD to listen to, I've heard them compared to ''DMB fronted by James Taylor,'' two bands/singers that I love, and it's true. I don't like their new stuff, but this CD is truly classic and I wish that they would go back to this style! Buy it, put it in your car and press repeat!
This is truly a great CD, for either a long time fan or a new listener. Probably the best stuff I've heard from Vertical Horizon, and the fact that it is live, rocks! If you like DMB, or James Taylor (Not a huge fan), or BNL, or any chill, jam rock bands you will love this CD. BEST TRACK: Great Divide
I was amazed to see they had this released. This is a great great cd. It's a much different style than their current one. I enjoy both just as much but since that one is getting too much radio play I choose to relax to this one. They are both really good.
